The possible story of a man, Aziz, told through the landscapes he traversed: the clinic where he was born in the Parisian suburb of Vitry, the neighbourhoods he grew up in, his schools, university and workplaces. Then, his departure to Egypt, Turkey and the road to Aleppo where he joined the ranks of the al-Nusra Front in 2012. A journey tracked by a second storyline, made of extracts from judicial records: police interrogations, wiretaps, surveillance reports… Documents, like pages from a script, intertwined with images and sounds to compose a flm that pertains less to a singular character, Aziz, than to the architectural, political, social and judicial landscapes in which his story unfolds •
